Psychiatry Fellows/Residents

Child & Adolescent Psychiatry Fellowship

Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Fellows rotate through the Division with Drs. Murphy, Wojas, Lewin, Toufexis, Rahman and Storch, learning to provide comprehensive psychiatric evaluations, evidence-based medication management, and cognitive-behavioral psychotherapy. Fellows see a wide array of cases including children and adolescents with obsessive-compulsive disorder, autism spectrum disorders, tic disorders, and other anxiety and obsessive-compulsive spectrum disorders. A multidisciplinary approach to assessment and treatment will be emphasized. Fellows are able to follow their patients for medication management and in some cases through the cognitive-behavioral therapy rotation. In addition, many will take on research projects that relate to work being done by faculty.
